Eight Formentera athletes get grants for sporting merits in 2021

The Formentera Office of Sports has agreed to offer financial aid to eight local athletes for sporting merits in 2021. This is the first year that money for sporting merits is offered, and the Consell has unlocked €25,000 in assistance. The maximum amount per athlete is €5,000. Individuals set to receive this aid are Mateo Jimenez (sailing), Helena Lafuente (sailing), Sergi Lafuente (sailing), Gisela Colomar (sailing), Hugo Colomar (sailing), Andrea Romero (athletics), Matías Conill (sailing) and Marc Escandell (athletics).

Paula Ferrer, councillor of sport, said the aid "offsets some of the financial burden borne by our athletes who compete at regional, national and international level" and that "the Formentera Office of Sport intends to keep offering this aid in the years ahead".

In granting the aid, the office considered individuals' participation in federated activities and competitions between 1 January and 31 December 2021 as well as in programming and other projects scheduled during the 2021 calendar year. Only individual sports and collective modalities of individual sports were considered.

€80,000 in grants for clubs

Last week, the government commission also approved the unlocking of €80,000 in aid for the local sports programme and the terms of the assistance. This annual call for grants seeks to help clubs and non-profit associations to continue their work preparing athletes.
